Chicago Mayor And Rev. Sharpton Claim Texas Gov Is Racist

Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson has been attacking Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) for the last few months due to the thousands of illegal immigrants sent to the Windy City. This time, with the help of Rev. Al Sharpton, he used the same tactic that the left leans on when faced with issues that turn out to be their fault: the racism card.

Speaking with Sharpton on MSNBC, both men tried to claim that Abbott was specifically targeting Black-run cities, insinuating that the Texas governor is racist.

“You’re absolutely right about the intentions of Gov. Abbott,” Johnson replied. “He is attacking democratically-run cities, and particularly cities that are being led by Black leaders or leaders-of-color. This is unconscionable. I mean, it’s a very raggedy approach. And quite frankly, not only is it reckless and raggedy, but it is evil-spirited.”

Of course, race-baiter Sharpton had to make things about race, also bringing New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) into the picture. There couldn’t be any other reason why their cities are receiving so many illegal immigrants.

Johnson is upset that his city now gets to flip the bill for thousands of illegals who should not be in the country to begin with. Like his New York City counterpart, he also fails to realize that he volunteered his city’s services. As always with the woke left, they’re all talk until it comes time for action.

The argument that Abbott is purposely trying to ruin minority-run Democratic cities is almost laughable.

While Chicago and New York City are seeing a lot of illegal immigrants bussed in, Mayor Mike Johnson’s (D) city of Denver is being flooded as well. The Denver mayor reported last month that the city is at its tipping point and asked the White House for assistance.

If Sharpton and Johnson were honest, they would have mentioned how Denver is struggling just as badly as Chicago and New York City. The main reason is that since the Denver mayor is White, it does not fit the left’s cry about racism.
The irony is that these comments were made a week before Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Men like Johnson, Adams and Sharpton have forgotten Dr. King’s words about not judging someone by “the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

Maybe Johnson and Sharpton should focus on the content of their character and actions before crying racism.
